Complex caught up with Capo at his video shoot for his latest single, “Love Me No More,” to talk Cam, Jay-Z, money, and what he likes to call swag-splashin’.
Complex: It was reported that Juelz hasn’t spoken to Cam in 3 months, what’s the status from a relationship standpoint between you three?
Jim Jones: We’re all grown men, at the end of the day, we’re still friends, we’re still brothers. Juelz took a moment off to get his music together and come back stronger than ever. Cam took his own hiatus and that’s what goes on. As far as we’re concerned it’s still Diplomats, it’s all Diplomat business, nothing’s changed, the bird still flies high, Byrd Gang/Skull Gang, let’s do it.
C: You think Dame would be a good replacement for Jay, now that Jay stepped down?
J J: Did he leave Def Jam, or was he fired? Or was he weak? Which one? What happened with Rocafella?
C: What do you think is the main the reason for their turmoil?
Jim Jones: I don’t know what their turmoil is. You know why I’m pissed off at him [Jay-Z]? He was my favorite rapper and then he just went out like a dud. He had a chance to do the unthinkable and then he did the unthinkable. Where I’m from, loyalty is everything, above and beyond everything. When you violate that, it fucks everything up. Especially when you were the hustler’s poster child and you chose to become a corporate stepchild. That don’t make sense when you’re all black-owned. I took an executive position because I didn’t know the game, I took it to learn both sides of the game; there’s a difference.
